Sarchu is an overnight stopover with tented accommodation on the Manali-Leh highway, on the border of Ladakh and Himachal Pradesh in India. It is nestled between the Baralacha La pass to the south and Lachulung La to the north, at a height of 4,290 meters. There is an Indian army camp located on the banks of the Tsarap Chu river. During winters, this highway and high passes along the road gets blocked and camps are closed. This spot is a popular trekking point in the Zanskar region of Ladakh.
